A Six-Word Memoir® is the story of your life—some part of it or all of it—told in exactly six words.

In classrooms and boardrooms, churches and synagogues, veteran's groups and across the dinner table, Six-Word Memoirs have become a powerful tool to catalyze conversation, spark imagination or simply break the ice.

Here on Six Words, we offer a simple platform to share the short, sharp story of your life, as well as provide daily prompts to share your six-word takes on the topics of our times.

More than half a million short stories have been shared here. Read more about six.

So give six a try—and make your words count.

At least they left our girls.

Our apartment was burglarized today. Hmmm...Friday the 13th I suppose. They took a few things: television, our Wii, our computer, and our Dish receiver (idiots why would they take our Dish receiver). They left the 6,000 dollars worth of bikes (idiots), the priceless amount of antiques (idiots), and all of my jewelry (IDIOTS). I mean if you are going to steal shit...steal it right. Couldn't they have taken my coffee pot, I hate that thing and would really like an excuse to get a new one. Idiots. They opened all of the closest, cupboards, and drawers but didn't mess the place up. Fuck them for opening my underwear drawer and touching my panties. I hope they saw the old shark attacked pair I wear when it's the time of the month. Fuck them for touching my shit. Thankfully our girls (cats) are still here and didn't escape. Fuck them if they touched my cats!
